Henry Landon: ‘All The Things In-Between’ at Lights of Soho

The Open Submissions show at SEEN’s favourite Soho haunt, Lights of Soho, continues apace with a special, exclusive, one-day-only exhibition this Saturday the 22nd of October, of Henry Landon’s ‘all the things in-between’.

The Open Submissions show at SEEN’s favourite Soho haunt, Lights of Soho, continues apace with a special, exclusive, one-day-only exhibition this Saturday the 22nd of October, of Henry Landon’s ‘all the things in-between’.

The work is influenced by the re-occurring fractal patterns found in nature and the mathematical principle of the Golden Section. The Fibonacci sequence is the mathematical formula discovered by Leonardo Pisano in 1202. This formula can be seen throughout the natural world – from a snail’s shell to the spiralling arms of a galaxy, and everything in between.

Henry said, “I created the piece to convey my fascination with the wonders of the natural world; ‘all the things in-between’ is a hypnotising optical spectacle that asks the viewer to revel in the majesty of the pattern.”

‘All the things in-between’ is constructed from walnut wood, bronze and perspex and is internally lit. Made of 20 segments that combine to form a fractal image, the multiple layers of wood and metal combine to give movement to the piece. The dimension of each segment conforms to the ratio of the Golden Section (derived from the Fibonacci sequence), and has been used by artists and designers for centuries.

If you haven’t visited it yet, do check out Lights of Soho, quite literally London’s brightest art gallery and members lounge, operating as a cultural hub for Soho’s creative community and the global home of creative neon and light art formats. It still has the spirit of old Soho, providing a daytime meeting space for Soho’s cultural connectors, influencers and creative community. Lights of Soho offers food and drink and an online art shop.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
